Local supermarkets saw more green this St. Patrick's Day

As the national festival of St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated Tuesday, area grocers noticed an uptick in the purchasing of the holiday staples this past week. Alex Stodola, manager of Stodola’s IGA in Luxemburg, says he saw a significant increase in purchases of the foods associated with St. Patrick’s Day.



He notes that the limited celebrations this year allowed families to do more traditional meals at home. According to a National Retail Federation report on St. Patrick’s Day, almost four of every ten people who intended to spend money on celebrations have gone to grocery stores in recent years.
